How can my experience be reconciled with the "rounding out" view of Jungians and many others? Over time, one builds up simple behavior patterns ("rules of thumbs") to preserve a semblance of order and balance in the areas one is weak in. In youth, people tend to be maximalistic and not recognize the worth of anything that is not a part of their strengths. In adulthood, an awareness of the worth of alternate behavior patterns and adaptation niches comes. One comes to terms at some point with one's own built-in limitations. This, however, does not mean that one suddenly begins to produce information from one's weak functions for society's use.
